CVE-2021-20261

Disclosure Date: March 11, 2021
Add MITRE ATT&CK tactics and techniques that apply to this CVE.

Description

A race condition was found in the Linux kernels implementation of the floppy disk drive controller driver software. The impact of this issue is lessened by the fact that the default permissions on the floppy device (/dev/fd0) are restricted to root. If the permissions on the device have changed the impact changes greatly. In the default configuration root (or equivalent) permissions are required to attack this flaw.
